School of Informatics

The School of Informatics is a frontier less intellectual space that radiates computing across applied science and social science disciplines. We perceive informatics as the binder that can transform and levitate applied domains, which are increasingly relied upon to address emerging challenges.

The academic programs of the school of informatics are interdisciplinary and of high quality. We ensure our students develop the ability to comprehend issues holistically, think objectively, and imbibe skills that would help them either find gainful employment or advance to a research career. A couple of years that one invests at the school of Informatics will return dividends in the future


We envision a ‘cooperatively competitive’ academic environment with focus on transmutation of information Socially and temporarily relevant research backed by quality education to churn out graduates with professional acumen, exceptional leadership and a humane heart.


The tri-value system of SoI intends to provide education through three allied values: learn, transmute and transform. The SoI imparts value-based and technology-oriented interdisciplinary education to students to bring them up as citizens who are socially conscious, intellectually competent and morally upright.
